If you don't ready my Face book you don't know that yesterday my sweet, gentle, loving Sage bucked me off. I mean she BUCKED, like a rodeo horse. I made it for two jumps, maybe 3 second and went sailing off and landed on my upper back. Thank God I had my helmet on. I always ride with it. Now it has a big dent in it. My most hurting place was my upper chest where I hit the horn on my saddle. It is not turning color yet, but it may. The other place is between my shoulder blades and my right thumb. It is really puffed up.

Today I am much better but sore. Alieve is helping a lot. My thumb is turning color this evening. Bob put Icy Hot on my back and I am going to take a hot soaky bath pretty soon.Places are sore that I don't know why, like my nose. That makes me chuckle.

We took Rosie up to Deer Park to visit a male donkey for a couple of weeks. I want a small spotted mule. I will sell it but just want one. She was chasing him around the pen when we left. He is about the same size as she is.She chasing him made us laugh - Bob and Vikki were really laughing.

We found out Emma's name is Cocoa. She will still be Emma to us.

Please remember my grand nephew and his wife in your prayers. She went in the hospital to have their baby boy last night late and Caden has not arrived yet.

Marilyn is coming tomorrow afternoon to work with Sage and to ride her. She and Bob made me promise not to get on her today. Marilyn was here yesterday when Sage dumped me. It scared her I know and Bob was scared and I knew I was not hurt too bad. At first I thought I was dead, if you have ever been bucked off and flying through the air all kinds of things go rapidly through your head.

I don't know why she did it, that is what worries me. I think something bugged her like something under her saddle pad but it should not have happened what ever. Anyway, I am living and plan to do that for a while.
